In 2017, Medallia.org began organically by a few Medallians fueled by their passion in the collective impact of giving back together. They saw a desire at Medallia to support their communities even more and amplify the impact of those already doing so.
Since then, this force has expanded to include Medallians across departments, levels, and office locations. In 2019, we took our commitment to the next level by joining Pledge 1%, a global movement in which giving back is ingrained into the DNA of companies of all sizes. Medallia is pledging 1% of our product and employee time.
As we enable more nonprofits with our products, we are able to invest more back into our communities through employee volunteering and charitable giving. It’s a cycle of goodness.
Within Medallia, we focus on creating streamlined processes and policies that make giving as easy as possible. This includes initiatives such as Volunteer Time Off, Employee Resource Group Gift Matching, and Global Week of Giving. Please get in touch if you are interested in partnering for volunteering or fundraising efforts.
As a natural evolution of our pledge, we are excited to launch our new Medallia.org Fund.
Nonprofits are more vital than ever as COVID-19, racial equity movements, and natural disasters have caused tremendous disruptions to the educational, health, and economic systems that we all rely on. That is why the Medallia.org Fund, in partnership with Tides (the leader in corporate philanthropic strategy and management), will provide monetary support to organizations focused on diversity and inclusion, as well as those providing frontline relief during emergencies. More information coming soon!
